Quote:Brooklyn Nets star Kyrie Irving is being crucified in the press for being a disgruntled NBA player who is selfishly clinging to a purportedly unscientific viewpoint on the Covid vaccines. The Nets star, who has famously held heterodox views such as believing the world may be ‘flat,’ is refusing to get with the program, so the narrative goes. He is a stubborn curmudgeon who refuses to comply with a perfectly reasonable vaccine mandate. Same old Kyrie.

But the truth is a lot more complicated than the usual suspects in the mainstream press are portraying it. According to a report by the widely respected sports publication “The Athletic,” Kyrie isn’t refusing to comply because he is against vaccines. He is refusing to play because of millions of Americans who stand to lose their jobs over the unconstitutional vaccine mandates.

“Irving is not anti-vaccine and that his stance is that he is upset that people are losing their jobs due to vaccine mandates,” The Athletic reported, according to its sources.

The Athletic also reported that Irving views the situation as a “grander fight than the one court and Irving is challenging a perceived control of society and people’s livelihood,” the publication’s sources told it.

Irving was recently suspended by the Brooklyn Nets for refusing to comply with the team’s ultimatum, despite a recent court ruling that he could practice with the team.

Brooklyn Nets General Manager Sean Marks announced: “Given the evolving nature of the situation and after thorough deliberation, we have decided Kyrie Irving will not play or practice with the team until he is eligible to be a full participant.”

“Kyrie has made a personal choice, and we respect his individual right to choose. Currently, the choice restricts his ability to be a full-time member of the team, and we will not permit any member of our team to participate with part-time availability,” Marks said. “It is imperative that we continue to build chemistry as a team and remain true to our long-established values of togetherness and sacrifice.”

Thus, even as vaccine companies are shielded from liability, and Kyrie Irving’s age demographic and physical fitness level give him a risk profile for vaccine-induced heart inflammation that is as serious as that of Covid-19 itself, the NBA “owners” are telling the players that they should “sacrifice” their bodies for the greater good. NBA player Jonathan Isaac, who had tested positive for Covid-19 in the past and thus has natural immunity, gave a similar position as Irving’s as he defended the right for people to control what is going into their own bodies.

“I’m not anti-Vax. I’m not anti-medicine. I’m not anti-science,” Issac said in a Sept. 27 press conference. “I have nothing but the utmost respect for every health care worker in person in Orlando, and all across the world that has worked tirelessly to keep us safe. My mom has worked in healthcare for a really long time. I thank God I’m grateful that I live in a society where vaccines are possible, and we can protect ourselves and have the means to protect ourselves for the first in the first place.”

“I’m not ashamed to say that I’m uncomfortable with taking the vaccine at this time. I think that we’re all different. We all come from different places, we’ve all had different experiences, and hold dear to different beliefs,” he said. “What it is that you do with your body when it comes to putting medicine in there should be your choice, free of the ridicule and the opinion of others.”

Isaac said he believed his antibodies, young age, and high level physical fitness put him in a relatively safe place without the aid of the vaccine. It should be noted that the CDC has admitted that vaccines do not stop the spread, and there were similar viral loads found between the vaccinated and unvaccinated.

“It would decrease my chances of having a severe reaction but it does open me up to the albeit rare chance with the possibility of having an adverse reaction to the vaccine itself,” he said. “I’m hesitant at this time but at the end of the day, I don’t feel that it is anyone’s reason to come out and say well this is why or this is not why it should just be their decision and you know loving your neighbors not just loving those that agree with you or look like you’re moving the same way that you do, it’s loving those who don’t.”

Andrew Wiggins of the Golden State Warriors has faced similar pushback over his personal decision not to initially get the Covid vaccine. However, Golden State Warriors’ ‘woke’ coach Steve Kerr and the team’s owner forced Wiggins to get the jab.

“I guess to do certain stuff, to work and all that, I guess you don’t own your body,” Wiggins said. “That’s what it comes down to. You want to work in society today, I guess they make the rules of what goes into your body and what you do.”

Wiggins had an allergic reaction to Tylenol and had to be prescribed an EpiPen should he get a bad reaction. The stories he has heard about people having bad reactions to vaccines had made him hesitant to get the Covid shots.

“I don’t know what it’s going to do to my body. There’s a lot of stuff. I feel like I could go on for days about why I didn’t want to get it. Most importantly, I don’t know what’s going to happen or what it’s going to do to my body in 10, 15 years, 20 years,” Wiggins said. “What it will do to my kids or my future kids. But I guess it’s something I had to get done.”

On Tuesday, a federal judge issued a preliminary injunction against the State of New York’s enforcement of a vaccine mandate that threatens the mass firings of thousands of health workers and public servants.

The court ruling was announced by the Thomas More Society, which is defending a group of 17 health care workers who object to New York State’s vaccine mandate on religious grounds. Judge David Hurd granted their request for an injunction, which stops the state from enforcing the policy, on equal protection and First Amendment grounds.

“Upon review, plaintiffs have established at this early stage of the litigation that they are likely to succeed on the merits of this constitutional claim,” the judge ruled. Thus, New York’s vaccine mandate is almost certainly unconstitutional.

Sports journalists once complained that people who owned teams were called “owners.” Now, they are applauding teams claiming ownership over their player’s bodies. It is inspiring to watch a few of these NBA players speaking out against this infringement of their rights.

If Kyrie Irving, who stands to lose millions of dollars by refusing to comply with the vaccine mandate is willing to stand up to this unjust system, it will draw more attention to the cause of millions of voiceless Americans who stand to lose their livelihoods over the vaccine mandates.

Lots of misrepresentations and flat out lies here.

“Woke” Steve Kerr didn’t make Andrew Wiggins do anything. Players Union wouldn’t allow that. The city of San Francisco said he couldn’t play home games until he was vaccinated.

Kyrie wasn’t “suspended”; the city said he couldn’t play until he was vaccinated. The Nets have told him if he doesn’t want to get vaccinated, he can sit on his couch and get paid the $19 million he would have made on road games.

He’s not going to do that though.

“Irving is not anti-vaccine and that his stance is that he is upset that people are losing their jobs due to vaccine mandates”

That’s his team setting up for when he gets vaccinated. They want to pretend like he was taking some noble stand for the everyman, instead of being his typical flat earther self.

Just pointing out a few of the lies in his copy/pasted wall of text. Probably does seem like babbling to someone who knows nothing about the subject.

If somebody posted lies about NASCAR or Skeet Shooting or whatever other non-woke sport you enjoy, I’m sure you’d do the same.

RE: Orlando Magic NBA player Jonathan Issac speaks about Covid vaccines
The flat earth stuff just drives me crazy. The fact that we have a north pole AND as south pole star totally destroys the flat earth nonsense. How the hell can you have a south pole star on a flat earth? Its totally impossible and ONLY possible on a global earth.

What does south even mean on a flat earth? All you are doing is going further out to the edge in all directions.

And if you are out on the edge how the hell is a south pole star possible? Its total lunacy.

I didn't watch all the videos, but I watched the OP. Never heard of this Jonathan Issac before, but impressed with how well spoken he is.

That's why most of the media is ignoring him and focusing on Irving instead.

RE: Orlando Magic NBA player Jonathan Issac speaks about Covid vaccines
NBA Player Jonathan Isaac Nails CNN on Why They Lied About Joe Rogan


Quote:Who would have thought some of the most compelling public thought we would hear on the subject of vaccine mandates would come from the NBA players?

But it’s true, among them Bradley Beal, Draymond Green, and Jonathan Isaac.

Now Isaac is speaking out further, attacking the media for their “blatant miscarriage of information” surrounding the subject of COVID and the mandates. He’s not against the vaccine; he’s against the mandate.



From Daily Wire:

“It’s not that people should not get the vaccine, that’s not the argument,” Isaac told Fox News on Monday. “It’s that for me there aren’t scientific legal or to me moral grounds for the vaccine mandate. I think when you take into account the nature of COVID and the nature of the vaccine that doesn’t stop infection or transmission, the nature of natural immunity that hasn’t been talked about and then obviously the polarization by the media that has created such distrust.” [….]

“If this thing is just about protecting people and protecting the public health, why does CNN have to lie about Joe Rogan taking ‘horse dewormer,’ or why does the Rolling Stone have to willfully misrepresent my position on the vaccine or COVID?” questioned Isaac. “Why do these things have to happen if it’s just about protecting people?”

Well said. If it were just about public health, they wouldn’t be lying and trying to go after Rogan.

Rogan was given ivermectin by his doctor when he came down with COVID; he didn’t take a “horse dewormer.” Despite that, CNN lied, in multiple reports, claiming he did. They also did not clarify that ivermectin has been prescribed for millions of humans, generally for its anti-parasitic purposes.

CNN completely deceived their audience. When called out on it in an interview with Rogan, Sanjay Gupta didn’t have a good explanation for his network’s lies. Gupta then did an spot with Don Lemon, where Lemon claimed they hadn’t really lied because ivermectin is a horse dewormer, despite the fact that isn’t what Rogan took. After Rogan took ivermectin along with a regimen of other things, he quickly recovered, he said.

Isaac said that it wasn’t just about his own personal choice, but protecting freedoms for everyone. He explained why he hadn’t gotten the vaccine.

“A lot went into my decision for not deciding to get the vaccine,” he told Fox News. “For starters, I have had COVID in the past. I understand our reactions as to immunity natural infection is robust and long-lasting,” he said, adding, “With my current physical fitness level and my age group I don’t feel I’m in a category of fear or of necessarily needing right now to get the vaccine.”

But despite his natural immunity, Isaac said he was not allowed to go to team functions or eat with the team in a restaurant. Yet, as he pointed out, this made little sense as he’s allowed to walk out of the tunnel with them and play in close contact with them on the court.

Isaac previously warned,

“We’re entering a period of time where the government is setting a precedent that in light of any emergency, your personal autonomy, your religious freedom, and honestly your freedom as a whole, becomes negotiable to whoever is in power or whoever agrees with the people in power.”

He continued,

“We live in the land of the free and the home of the brave and we have to take the opportunity and the platform to say what it is that we feel is right, and I’m taking that right to do so, not just for me, but for all the people who feel like they don’t have a voice, who feel like their rights and their liberties are being threatened at this time.”

That’s really what it gets down to. Simple and clear thought, but sorely missing in the public square today from those with big platform from which to speak. Kudos to Isaac for laying it out there and putting himself on the line in the process.

You wouldn’t have to lie about Rogan and force people into it if it wasn’t about control. This isn’t the first time Isaac has stood with clarity over a controversial issue. He refused to kneel or wear a BLM t-shirt when other players did. At the time, he said, “It’s my thought that kneeling or wearing a Black Lives Matter t-shirt don’t go hand-in-hand with supporting black lives.” That says a lot about the courage of the man to stand for what is right.
